It feels futile to Pick Up Trash in NYC, but when I visit, I do it anyway. There are millions of people in this city and if even only a small percentage of people picked up a couple pieces of litter a day, this would be a much cleaner city. There are trash cans on almost every corner. It’s not like picking up a piece of litter and tossing it in the can 10 steps up the street is really much more of a bother than just walking past it.
Come on, people now!
Pick Up Trash
It’s not difficult and in doing so, you are making a real impact to improve your surroundings.
In addition, New York should REALLY embrace everything to do with reduced, reusable packaging (for example, carry a reusable shopping bag w you in your backpack!) and packaging made from 100% post consumer waste.
One more thing, New Yorkers should mount a HUGE anti-litter campaign.
These actions taken together would vastly improve this already extraordinary city and it’s amazing amenities.
I love New York. And despite the seeming futility, I believe that every PUT, no matter the location and no matter how small, makes a difference.
